It has a very spacious feel and all surfaces are wooden. There is also a small stage surrounded by windows at the far end of the room. There will be dancers and improvised video projection as well as cloth forms and drapes to be projected on and interacted with.

The happening occurs Wednesday, Feb. 25th from 7-9pm. It will be two 45-minute free improvisations with an audience/artist interaction period during intermission.
